The Aston Martin DB MKIII was designed to replace the aging DB2/4 and represented the final evolution of the David Brown Aston Martins. They wore coachwork by Tickford with the most notable visual differences of their predecessors were the DB3S style grille and revised dashboard layout, which together established a new Aston Martin tradition and that continued throughout the production of the DB4, DB5, and DB6 series.

This Aston Martin DB Mk III Drophead Coupe was originally finished in Blue Haze with blue gray Connolly leather upholstery. It had left-hand-drive arrangement, and optioned with a rare continental spares kit. It was also given front disc brakes and rear cathedral taillights.

The car was delivered to Waco Motors on November 12th of 1957. The earliest recorded owner of the car was Robert Yahn, a Pratt Whitney engineer from Lake Park, Florida. It was later acquired by Jack Horn of Nashville, Tennessee. While in his care, the car was disassembled in preparation for restoration, but the project never developed beyond the initial stages. For approximately 2 decades, the DB Mk III sat in a barn outside of Nashville, the body removed from the frame and the frame and various parts were neatly catalogued.

In 2000, the car was discovered by Kevin Kay and acquired it for his client, Reid Dennis, for whom he had just restored a left-hand-drive DB MK III Saloon. A restoration began in October off 2000 and finished in a year later, in November of 2001. Upon completion, Mr. Dennis was the proud owner of two matching concours-quality DB Mk IIIs, both finished in the same Blue Haze color and optioned with Borrani wire wheels, front-disc brakes, dual exhaust, and a bumper overrider bar.

Several mechanical upgrades were incorporated into both restorations, including a KKR-developed five-speed transmission conversion and the UK-sourced 'Feltham fast' suspension system with uprated wheel hubs, spring towers, and alloy brackets.

Both cars remained with Mr. Dennis for several years before the pair was sold to Anthony Symmes, a Northern Collection who owned several significant Aston Martins. The current owner acquired the car in 2010.
